If I ever run out of money and worry about my children's future....I hope I can do iit the way Kate is! She claims the money is running out to the point she is worried, but she has done nothing but travel (with an unnecessary and questionable bodyguard) to Austrailia and now Las Vegas. It is obvious her new Coupon joke job is most certainly NOT even close to a 9 to 5 commitment.

Techymum said...

Things just seem fishy about this. If she is truly running the marathon, then her training is not on par. She should be in a tapering phase now, and should have completed a 20 mile run earlier than she is claiming she did.

Training at this level takes hours and hours away from one's family.

Also taking a trip across the globe so close to the
race would mess up ones training.

We will see, but if she is indeed IN the race, I think she will have a hard time finishing.

HW said...

Techymum - I agree with you. I've never run a marathon but my husband has and he followed a very strict 18-week training program.
My son is planning to run one this spring; he has no training program but is a Marine so is very disciplined on his own, as well as very well conditioned. He has gradually worked up to running 17 miles at a time at this point.

I just can't see Kate being disciplined enough to train on her own; nor cordial enough to train with others.

A recent tweet of hers mentioned that she just finished running 20 miles. Do you supposed that is in response to your comment?

Brummygirl said...

Hmmm...am waiting for the excuse why she could not run in the marathon.

Elise S said...

She says she is running in the LV marathon (Saturday, December 4), but I believe that is merely an excuse to get out of town for an extended weekend with Purse Boy minus the kids. I am betting they will leave Thursday, fly first class, stay in a five-star hotel, dine in five-star restaurants and shop (for Kate). She may show up at the marathon in running gear with PB taking pics, but she will quietly leave the race after the first mile. Then she will twitter away about how she made it to mile 25 and pulled a muscle or something making it impossible for her to finish. All this will be one big fat LIE - like the LIE that is her entire life. She just wants PB and me time.

I wonder how she will deal with the altitude sickness. She has spent most of her life at sea level. Her body is going to be working twice as hard to supply itself with oxygen. She is going to put serious stress on her body if she runs. It takes at least two weeks for your body to adapt to high altitudes.

I know that she has visited places like Utah before that are high in altitude. She has NEVER stressed her body out while being in one of those places.

mama san said...

I, too, do not believe that Kate will make it very far in the LV marathon. I can hardly wait for her excuse. She believes her own statements that she runs 20-miles.

Techymum said...

I also have never trained for a marathon, but I am currently training for a 10k. Small potatoes, but big enough for me.

I have a workout list that has one rest day, with the rest of the time laid out between running various distances, and cross training. SHe continues to say she doesn't have a trainer, etc. I don't have a trainer, but I have used every avenue of help/experience available to me.

If she does actually pull it of she is to be commended. I just have my doubts. And again, the time that it takes to properly train is time away from those kids, and also afforded because one doesn't work at a regular job. My little training schedule has me away from the house almost 2 hours each day.

kate can't do sh** said...

I actually believe Kate will run that marathon. She has the classic type A personality plus she is driven beyond belief. She is doing this marathon to prove to herself she can do it, a classic belief lots of people have when they decide to do a marathon. I think people will be surprised that she did it and finished it. Myself, I am indifferent to whether she does it or not. But it is nice that she can spend her work-free days training and thinking of no one but herself. Plus I beg Steve is digging her new skinny rack these days.

senior citizen said...

I thought I read she is running the half marathon. Many miles for sure, but not nearly as bad.

Techymum said...

Ah dear Khate, proof again that you read/respond to this site....there it is, out of the blue, her tapering schedule.....

never a word before about her schedule for running, etc. Put something up on here, and voila, there it is - she is tapering!!!!

kinman said...

What a narcissist! The Marathon Countdown Message Blog is now up on her website for all of her fans to comment! AND..she ran 80 times around her driveway (she could not leave because she had the kids) and they cheered her on during her 1 hour and 20 minute run! I am very supportive of people staying in shape and exercising, but she really makes everything all about HER and HER accomplishments. She knows how much Cara is into sports. Maybe they could show them running together more often (as well as one-on one with the other kids too.) Kate is so about herself, and focusing on herself all of the time. She could do wonders if she did more family fitness activities on her so-called "family website" instead of this "ME" stuff all the time. I know moms deserve it, and she could still have it, but she could do both. Sounds like she is just looking forward to another kids-free vacation.

Wait...what? said...

Very excellent points, Techymum! A really close friend finished the NYC marathon and she had a very disciplined training schedule. I would LOVE to see how she fits all that running with 8 kids. I barely have time to squeeze in three miles with a 7 mth old at home!

barbee said...

Techymum said, another proof of the pudding, I posted somewhere that she had the pic of her "L" pancake backwards on her k+MY8 crap and voila, the whole article is gone.

She is soooo easy to second guess, it is AMAZING (wonderful word I learned from her).

RONLEE said...

IN THE PHOTO ON RADARONLINE - SHE LOOKS BAD, MEAN, ETC.


With all of the buzz about me having had a facelift, I will confirm that I have not had one (I am only 36!!!),” Kate wrote on her CouponCabin.com blog on Monday. “But, I will take all of the talk about how rested and young I look as a compliment! So thanks

Really? My kid (age 9) would have wandered off after five minutes. I wonder what she threatened/promised them?

Dan C said...

I just saw Khate on with that billy half a man bush on Xtra because she had to come on an explain to america about the facelift rumors...are you kidding me dearie name me 10 people that give a rats a## about you an your pathetic life...another slow day at Xtra

Kate sux said...

She will finish that marathon, by golly, because she had tenacity, determination and whatever else they're whispering in her earpiece. Plus all that jogging has helped her lose so much weight that she looks like she had a facelift! Eye roll. Love how she said working out and losing weight has restored her back to herself. Ugh. No, fool. Plastic surgery has turned you into an alien lizard whose eyes keep moving farther apart.

Jenny O said...

"AND..she ran 80 times around her driveway (she could not leave because she had the kids) and they cheered her on during her 1 hour and 20 minute run!"

This had me laugh right out loud. Yeah Kate - suuuuuuuuuuuure! Your children stood outside in the cold for an hour and 20 minutes just to cheer you on as you ran around in circles. If they indeed stood at attention while Kate ran around, it was probably under threat of severeness!

But in Kate's shriveled mind, everything does revolve around her. Of course her children would want to watch her run in circles and cheer while she did so. Yet when have we EVER seen Kate stand for even half an hour watching any of her children participate in a sport and cheer them on?

I'll answer: NEVER. And we never will. Because the world revolves around Kate, and the children are props in that twisted world of hers. There to make her look good, to cheer her on, to listen to her stories of what Kate did that day. It's all backwards. Normal parents cheer their children on, encourage them, ask how their day went. In Kate's world, the children must feed mommy's ego and never will they get any encouragement or nurturing from Kate.

Still I had to laugh at the image of Kate running in circles for over an hour. Did she don her Red Cross blanket like a cape while she was at it?

Elvira said...

To finish the marathon before the time cutoff she has to do better than a 10:30 per mile pace - for 26.2 miles. I hope she settles for the half-marathon.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Elvira, IIRC, she is signed up to do the half marathon. I believe she will start out good, then taper off, (haha) then run a little while, then oops, faux injury!

Helloooooooooooo, STEVE!

Help me back to the 5 star hotel room and lets order up a Golden Bucket with Ice, so I can ice down my ankle!
Then let's order up a 5 star dinner and 5 star champagne, expensive Waterford crystal champagne glasses, rose petals everywhere and please darling, have room service draw our bubble bath, light the candles, and tell them I want new ones, not the same ones from last night!

So glad the kids get a couple of days break from kate and hopefully spend some time with Jon.

(((((((((((((((

It was 65 degrees that day. They couldn't have been outside playing while she ran?

***********************
She certainly lives in cloud cuckoo land. Those kids cannot sit still for a minute never mind stand in the driveway for an hour or so, which children would?
Here kids, let's line you up with placards take a photo and Mommy will run down the drive and back.
Even if she did more than this, she has told so many lies along the way, that I do not believe anything she says now.
No matter what she does, she still mentions the children somehow.
They are still her ticket.

JTN said...

If I understand the system correctly, the timing tag is on the bib(number) initially and then you have to stick it to your shoe. At various points of the race, it should record the pace/time of each individual tag. When her number is recorded into the system, if you are really curious, you should check to see if anyone else records an identical time or within milliseconds of her recorded tag time.
If her tag is X, it will have a totally different time than everyone else because none of us run literally piggyback. In addition, even if you start with someone, the odds are practically impossible you will stay exactly on pace with them for the entire race. If tag X and any other tag(Y) hit almost identical times in more than 1 location on the route it is highly unusual. If tag X and that same tag(Y) hit identical times in 2 or more locations, it is almost certain tag X was passed off to another person to run with 2 tags in the race to make it look like tag X's owner was running but in reality quit.

Here is the link to the Vegas run.
http://runrocknroll.competitor.com/las-vegas/event-details

Apparently there is a "high heels" dash the day before. Maybe Kate should have entered that, Brooke Burke is presiding.
Also, entrants can downgrade from a half-marathon to a mini marathon, according to their entrant sheets, on request.
If Kate finishes the half-marathon, I guess we will have to eat our words..preferably organic!!

Techymum said...

Brummygirl said:

No worries - you won't have to eat anything....she has been saying the entire time she is running the marathon. 26.2 miles. People running a half-marathon do not refer to it as a marathon, ever. And they do not write out the length as 26.2....

I am sure she can finish the half, and perhaps even the full. But she has been very dodgey about it, and leaves so much open to speculation.

Jenny O said...

I will be interested to see how Kate fares in the full marathon she is running tomorrow in Las Vegas. I've been reading comments elsewhere that point out she has not properly trained, nor really understands the proper way to prepare for a marathon. One person (a fan) tweeted something to her about stopping by their booth at this marathon thingy, and they would tape her. Kate responded with "tape?" She seemed to be unaware that marathon runners tape their feet to help prevent blistering and other minor running injuries. She also posted a picture of a breakfast she was having, and said she was carb loading. The plate had three donuts on it, plus french toast with syrup, and maybe a muffin. Someone politely suggested she should save the sugary carbs for after the race, and load up on better carbs. She clearly has no idea what she's doing. She keeps tweeting about how anxious she is. I think she is indeed freaked out, and with good reason. Running a full marathon is an extremely demanding task, not to mention she's not used to running at Las Vegas altitude. I don't think she's going to be able to complete it.

8unhappycampers said...

I can't help but think Kate is the antithesis of a real runner. The boobs, the hair, the makeup, the hooker heels. Lord she had no clue about tape, probably doesn't know a shin splint from a hamstring pull, her ideas of nutrition are ludicrous. If she were a serious runner she would have run in any one of the numerous local races-3k to 10k's abound. Cue John Belushi! But NOOO! She goes for a full marathon in a different climate, time zone and altitude. Cue the music, warm up the spotlights, its all about attention not fitness. Lordy be. Will she run without makeup? Horrors

Captain of the Titanic said...

Do you think Kate will be allowed to run the marathon with her pink phone in her hand?

marinanci said...

Can't imagine spending the money that must be involved, including travel and vegas hotel for 2, when her financial future is bleak.
Cause despite K8's anxiety, running a marathon is not performing brain surgery. Either you finish or you don't. Big deal either way.Her stress and nerves are just stupid. People are stressed because they have no jobs, because of family illness.Jogging down the streets of Vegas with rock bands performing, not really stress. The R&R marathon has 44,000 participants, half of whom never ran a marathon before. SO she is in good company if she is sincere about this. But i believe that she chose this event because it is Vegas and she expects publicity and cameras being attracted to her. How sad she will be when she realizes no one in the real world - or vegas- knows or cares who she is. Brooke B from DWTS is hosting a marathon in heels event for fun and charity, and Kate tweeted brooke, but of course no response, and former DWTS K8 was not asked to attend. I think the marathon - going off at 4:00 Vegas time, will be a sad, expensive lesson for Miss Kate.

Kate Gosselin Attends Pre-Marathon Party
December 04, 2011 11:31 AM EST
comments: 4
Kate Gosselin is running her first marathon today in Las Vegas and she is so excited! The mom of eight has participated in the pre-marathon events and will likely be taking party in celebratory parties after she runs the 26.2mi marathon!

"It felt really real last night when I attended the kick off party with the Competitor Group who owns and runs the Las Vegas Marathon as well as many others across the country and abroad," Kate wrote on her blog.

It is customary for marathon runners to get together at a function the day or night before the big race. It's a chance for them to mingle, get to know each other, and to share tips about endurance and what have you. From Kate Gosselin's blog, you can tell that she had fun at the kick off party and that she got a lot of good advice. Perhaps the best tip she got was that "finishing the marathon is winning." Her fans believe she will celebrate tonight after a huge victory!

ronlee said...

Las Vegas half marathon started at 5:30 pm pacafic time and the full marathon at 4:30 pacafic time. It will be awhile before the results are available

Can't wait for the Kate's results

Sharla said...

Kate passed the start line at a few seconds before 4:12. Next update mark is 10K.

Sharla said...

The leaders began the race shortly after 4:05.

Sharla said...

For some reason Kate's start time shifted to a bit after 4:12.

Sharla said...

10K checkpoint 1:01:56 pace 9:58. Estimated finish 4:21:18 at 8:33.

(10K is approx 6.2 miles)

Sharla said...

10 miles 1:42:32. 10:44 pace since the 10K marker. Estimated finish is now 4:36:25 at 8:47. She should reach the halfway point in about 30 minutes.

Sharla said...

Halfway at 2:15:51. Pace 10:45 on that section. Estimated completion 4:36:52.

Debbie H said...

Just saw a picture of the thousands ready to run in the marathon...I find it hard to believe that Kate is ok with being in the middle of the thousands as just one of the many...Surely she has her own personal space to run where nobody can touch her and Steve can make sure nobody gets any pictures of her????

Shoka's Understudy said...

Is it true that kate tweeted Brooke B about the high heels race for charity and she got no response?

And they asked her not to attend?

If true:
Wow!!! Way to go DWTS!!!

Is it possible for Steve to run ahead wait for kate to catch up and they could switch bibs for the time. I wouldn't put nothing past her!

Watcher said...

Popping out of lurkdom to note that Kate Gosselin's posted times are identical to those of Bib #59617 (Kate is Bib #59615).

How does that happen?

Anonymous said...

she is a fool and will never finish. I live in Boston and we have one every year plus smaller ones. The night before all the runner go to big tents and eat piles and plles of carbas. pasta and such a tiny muffin will not do it katie dear

Sharla said...

19.5 miles 3:29:52. Pace this section 11:34. Average pace for entire race to this point 10:46. Estimated finish 4:47:33.

Sharla said...

So who is Paula Congelio and why are she and "Kate" crossing each and every timing marker exactly in sync to the 100th of a second?

ladybug said...

Paula Congelio is on staff at Penn State Eberly Campus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ladybug said...

Paula Congelio ran the Pittsburg Marathon earlier this year and her time was 4:55:39.
She has run at least 7 marathons over the years.

JTN said...

Given the results between bibs Bib: #59617 and Bib: #59615 I'd bet a huge amount of money that someone has passed off a tag. It's considered highly unethical, but it is the only way to hit absolute identical times through the entire course. In addition, that tag had to be passed by the 10K mark because of the identical times. Even if they are running together, they would hit probably a second apart. To be within hundreds, they have to be hitting together.. and at every stop, it is statistically improbable, and likely impossible.
It's also a certified qualifier race for the Boston marathon so cheating is extremely frowned upon by organizers.

Sharla said...

23.1 miles 4:19:58 pace 13:56. Expected finish 5:03:23. Kate

23.1 miles 4:19:57 pace 13:55. Expected finish 5:02:21. Paula

JTN said...

Look at Bib: #59616 as well.
That runner looks to hit the half at a different time, but the 19.5M and 23.1M times are also absolutely identical with the absolutely identical finish time.
It looks like some tags got passed between the half and around 19.6M

Sharla said...

Ellen with bib ...17 did not have a 10K or 10 mile interval time either. What is going on here?

Debbie H said...

Well, I don't know much about marathons, but I don't think if Kate is caught cheating, it will do much to improve her likability...I don't think it would teach your kids anything positive to be proud of, either...

Watcher said...

Ellen Lamar is from Bethel PA. Connection?

Sharla said...

Paula/Kate finished 4:59:21 at 9:11:17. Average pace 11:26.

heavennoseven said...

So, what did she place with other runners.


Where the kids with Jon at all his weekend?

Stephanie said...

So does she just get away with it? Is there anyone here who can bring this evidence to the race administrators to try to get Kate banned from further races? Publicly humiliated?

Sharla said...

Ellen's record was corrected to a half marathon.

Debbie H said...

Stephanie, I say just make it public....see how she explains herself out of it...Just goes to show how she will do ANYTHING to get publicity....including entering a marathon she can only finish with the help of cheating friends from Pennsylvania...disgusting...but so is everything else she does..why should this be any different???

Sharla said...

I put the comparison screen grab on twitter as twitpic. Please feel free to retweet or copy and send to people.

Katykat said...

My husband just ran a 100 mile marathon and he, too, says it looks like tags were passed.

ronlee said...

I saw a picture of Steve in one of the photos. Did he run with her?

Leslie Creech said...

I read this site all the time but have never posted until now. I find this woman insulting both as a mother and a runner. I'm a runner and have certainly run 26.2 before but something's very fishy about Kate's marathon. The level of training required for a marathon especially your first usually results in some injuries or at least blisters along the way but not her. She chose a race far away from where she trained wiith different running conditions. She wasn't aware of the tapering phase of training or the right carbs to eat shortly before the race day. Here time is identidcal to someone else. Lastly, I see pre race pics but not finish/after the race pics. Doesn't everyone take a picture of their big finish with medal around their neck? I don't believe for a minute that she actually ran that race!

JB in PA said...

Check back to the event site in a couple days when they post pictures at the finish line. Who wants to bet the same runner shows up for both bibs?

ladybug said...

If Kate truly ran and finished the entire marathon, then I would certainly want to give her a hearty congratulations. I am a bit of a skeptic however, and would really like to see pictures of her crossing the finish line. Does the marathon document the finish line in any way visually? By the way, I did see a picture of her with old Stevie boy in the background. She was in her race garb with her number on her shirt. He was wearing athletic shoes himself, however he didn't seem to have typical running gear on.

ronlee said...

You know something. The person that had the same time could have been Steve. He was there with her. You know she can't leave her home without the "armed guard".

Jenny O said...

I would like someone to bring these suspicious matching race results to the attention of the race organizers. I'd also love for gossip sites to get ahold of the results and start asking pointed questions. Sounds like Kate pulled a Katie Holmes and started the race, then had someone else run it for her.

I am not in the least surprised. She doesn't have what it takes to run even a half marathon, much less a full marathon.

The good news is - this doesn't do anything to put her back in the limelight, nor will it get her back on tv on a regular basis. The silver lining is that her children had a break from their toxic mom for a few days, while she play-acted accomplishing something worthwhile. (Steve is just as much of a grifter/con artist as Kate, as if we had any doubt before this.)

Techymum said...

Leslie - I totally agree with you. Things just don't add up. My first 5k I made sure that every member of my family was there to meet me at the finish line. AND take pictures. My first 10k is a few days away, and again - enlisting everyone to share the joy/accomplishment. I don't know what is up, but something is....

Marilyn said...

Access Hollywood just said k9 was at a party at Mark Burnetts house Sat night...I believe she Twittered she was at the pre marathon party...I'm no runner but being at a party in la the night before would probably not work...and again she lied about where she was...

Debbie H said...

Well, I have commented on every site I am allowed to post my opinion...lol..Maybe someone somewhere will be just a little interested in checking out what really happened...Probably there just isn't that much interest in her to begin with:)..Anyway, I would think she would be lying about being at a party at Mark Burnettes house more than anything...Why in the HELL would anyone there want her ass there? She had to have been invited as the guest of a D lister who got invited...no way she got her own invite to that...lol

Jenny O said...

Does Mark Burnett live in Las Vegas? I thought Kate tweeted that she attended the pre-marathon "party" the night before, and supposedly met a veteran marathon runner who gave her advice.

8unhappycampers said...

Okay. Either Kate took Ellen's bib and dropped out at the half or she gave her bib to Paula who stuffed it in her back pocket. Either way, what a cheat! And just for bragging rights? Can't imagine anyone but her broke little self having to fund this scheme. Oh zipping around the net it seems Ellen and Paula are sisters. Yippee.

Brummygirl said...

The biggest scam since Watergate.....CheatingKate! I am not a runner but we have marathons, triatholons, half marathons, run in our area each year and have never seen identical times for anyone.
She is tweeting and said this is the photo of her medal and is ready to train for another one.
I call you out Katie Kreider, proof of you crossing the finishing line!

Katykat said...

That's right. Where's the pic of her crossing the finish line? Wrapped in the blanket? Getting all of the freebies and food? Smiling and holding up that medal w/ her 2 running buddies and her boyfriend?

VERY suspect.

The one with Steve is the very last one. You'll notice some sort of tag attached to Kate's shoe. Also notice what Steve is wearing.

Anita said...

There are several pictures of Kate crossing the finish line at www.gettyimapes.com. Sorry, I don't know how to link. In one picture there is a girl crossing the line with Kate, Paula, and Ellen, her bib number is 58603. Her chip time is 4:29:37, how can that be if Kate's is 4:59:21?

I hope that works. If not query Kate and editorial images at gettyimages.com.

She was paced and quite closely paced which is considered cheating not coaching.

ladybug said...

What does it mean that she was paced or closely paced? How is that cheating?

Once a liar, always a liar... said...

She just can't stop lying! It looks to me as if the other lady who ran almost the identical time was her "pacer", coaching Kate throughout the marathon. But of course instead of Kate admitting that she has a coach, professional help or whatever, she lies about it. I guess in her twisted mind she thinks it looks better if she did it "all by herself". I am assuming this goes into the same category as "I didn't get my boobs done" and "I didn't have plastic surgery on my face". I hope someone in TV/public calls her out on this. Even if it's not cheating per se I think having someone pace you at the marathon is unethical. JMO

Techymum said...

I believe the proof is in the pictures. Kate is crossing the finish line beside the runner who does not have any running information available. The runner with the exact times as her is a few paces behind, thus it could not be exact.

From what I'm seeing, the race was very disorganized, and no doubt easy to make little changes to help you along.

Also looking at the pictures, and there are lots of her at the gettyimages site, she was some sort of "staaaa" while there. WTF?

I doubt there will ever be an answer, due to the darkness which makes everything more complicated. Is that why she chose this one? Who knows. But racing is against yourself, so Kate, if you cheat, so what. I will keep running, and racing, and doing my best.

Poor kids is all I can say.

-------------------------------
Kate can never admit that she had help because she would have to share the spotlight. That can never happen. Its all about her and only her. She has no help in any aspect of her life (gardeners, pool person,nannies, etc.) So she obviously did it all herself, not with any helpers. Spotlight, mine all mine.

Ok, I guess I'm not seeing a big scandal here. I saw the pictures of her finishing and am happy to know she didn't pass off her tag. It wasn't very long ago that Kate spoke at Penn State and that must be where she met these people. So congratulations Kate. I don't think I could do it, so well done. Of course I don't see the point of taking this much time away from your children to do strictly "me" things, but whatever.

Elvira said...

Actually Kate crossed the finish line step in step with the two runners who paced her through the race. One went the entire marathon and the other did a half but timed it to join up with Kate and Paula.

Jenny O said...

I have read other accounts of this particular marathon and apparently many of the runners who participated were/are displeased with the organization (or lack thereof). Sounds like at some point, the runners with the earlier start time merged with those that started at 5:30 p.m. for the half marathon, and it was a huge mess. People were walking, so the serious runners were getting slowed down, plus it was a bottle jam. If you are a serious marathoner, this created huge frustrations.

Seems like many people came to party and didn't take the marathon part seriously. There were bands at every mile, probably people partying and boozing it up too.

In this crowd, Kate could easily fake her run, and show up at the finish line. The photos of the three women at finish line raise a red flag as well. None of them look exhausted as one would expect after completing a marathon. I'm pretty sure Kate rigged this, but as to actual proof of the rigging - doubtful.

Jenny O said...

Kate was mocked this morning by my morning DJ's, out of San Francisco. One DJ said, "well that's a pretty good metaphor for Kate isn't it - she's always running away from things, such as her kids!" They joked about how the kids were supposedly having a marathon party at home, without their mom. One DJ has a girlfriend who runs marathons, so he knows how demanding it is to train for a marathon (hours per day,especially leading up to one).

He sounded skeptical that Kate would be the kind to do the work; and then the other one wondered at a mom spending so much time in an activity that takes her away from her kids. (A female DJ who has 2 kids of her own.)

They didn't question whether she really did the marathon. But they weren't impressed and overall, the tone was dismissive. I think they feel she did it to get attention and to get away from her children.

Here is an interesting blog post on the ethics of pacing in a race:
http://misszippy1.com/2010/04/does-pacing-equal-cheating.html

I still think that Kate sat out part of the race and then finished "strong" and that is why all the mix up in the numbers.

Will Never Believe Her said...

Truthfully if I hear or read or see some person(s) who actually saw Kate run during those 5 hours then I would believe it. I do not.

Why hasn't anyone come forth with photos by now? Not of her finishing, anyone can finish.

Bet those friends she was with have the same shoe size, huh?

Yep, it is like everything she does; phony.

By the way, so it is a way to show her children that they MUST succeed with everything they attempt in life? Very sad, as no one matures or strives the same in this lifetime.

Kate, just say it was for the freebees and you and Steve needed some time away from the house and the kids.

Kate's "tweeties" are going crazy as she has barely tweeted since the race and they all want a "tweet party" with her to congratulate her. I think she is not tweeting as she is still on the west coast and not at home.

Reading the comments on runitfast.com that were written by REAL runners was interesting. Their frustrations of coping with the "so-called" runners must have been maddening. Yet, good old K8 had NO complaints....hahaha! All the more reason to believe that she DID NOT DO the entire race. With so many people participating in the race, she does not have the temper and poise to put up with so many people in CLOSE CONTACT. Did she stay in and actually do the entire race? NO HOW... NO WAY!

From an observer said...

As we discussed...

"read the comments on the rnr page. Kate didn't run the race. She was on the sidelines and riding to the checkpoints on someones tomos scooter and at every checkpoint, the announcers gave platitudes to Kate and none of the other runners. Pissed many of the committed runners off.
It was a paid appearance to garner support for a race and a charity that isn't a 501c3 organization and like everything in Las Vegas, what happens there, stays there. Her bodyguard didn't walk the entire course carrying a pink handbag. He was on a scooter pacing her for 3 miles and then picking her up and pacing the race to keep the shoe tag legit. When they came to a checkpoint at 500 feet, Kate jumped off as the crowd and contestants were too busy to notice. Kate made all the check points. She actually completed the marathon but she didn't do it toe to heel.
Kate was paid to attend, RnR posted her picture on their facebook page in an attempt to lend some credence to the event however the event was a total cluster fuck. After the event, Kate was walking around away from the contestants and stayed clear of Steve. It was NOT a sanctioned race and it was NOT what Kate will lead you to believe. The entrance fee was paid by an LLC and not connected to her publicist however her publicist was there. her bodyguard paced the entire race on a scooter and was there at many points during the race with Kate at his side while the committed runners made their trek. The marathon was a total scam, Kate paid to attend, barely participated and will use this for media attention."

##################

Kate is following the same route as Jon right after the divorce. She did several paid events including a pool party at a hotel in Vegas. Actually getting paid to be places is quit common in Los Angeles. Various "stars" will get paid $10,000 just show up at a bar and be seen. So, it's not surprising it happens in Vegas also. It has worked for people like Paris Hilton, I'm not so sure it will support Kate for the long term!

Brummygirl said...

I suspected she was a darn cheat and would not run the whole way and her stupid sheep believe it!!
There is only one person you really cheat Kate and that is yourself. Oh I forgot, you have no conscience! Shame on you!!!

Liz said...

Anyone else find it odd that she has the energy to run for a hug and then more hugs? She barely even seems winded.

ronlee said...

Passed Kate's mansion 30 minutes ago...not one Christmas light outside. Thought she was out looking for white lights a week or so ago. There are plenty of white lights available at all the big box stores, and local hardware stores.

Poor kids said...

Will she ever go away? Who keeps giving her this paid for jobs like appearing to race and totally relaxed and not sweating after that type of race?

Doesn't make sense. Maybe the Vegas jobs are the bottom of the barrel.

Let's hope.

No Christmas lights because the kids are probably not at home nor is she.

senior citizen said...

To paraphrase and better word what I said elsewhere -

Khart apparently has got herself involved with a promotional group where she has to train and maybe run in MARATHONS in order get an appearance fee and random benefits.

These appearance fees and comps (and this is something I do know about) are not enough to pay a month of her expenses, no matter how much she has saved up. So in order to stay a GradeZ name, she is not making enough to stay bank accout positive and is having to ---- at the very least ----------- pretend to train for yet another marathon. That's a lot of training.

So ... her life gets sillier by the day.

I truly hope that "perfect" private school is still considering the children an example of "diversity" and giving them some kind of enoromous discount so Khart's kids can stay in that sheltered environment. Because they do need a structured environment aside from their parents.

She was looking for white lights for her Christmas tree, not for outside use.

barbee said...

Speaking of her Christmas lights, where was she going with 8-10 boxes of 300 light strands? And when is her not-a-light-man going to get them up?

Loved it at the end of the race when she came jogging off the street and at the last second veered away from Steve to the other guy for a hug.

Katie Cry-duh said...

The dumb bitch sent out a tweet/begged for white Xmas lights, stated she promised kids the tree would be lit by (I think) the MONDAY before the marathon. She received the lights, yet still left the tree half lit before leaving town. Sounds like she left those kids on Tuesday and returned a full week later for a 5 hour race/scooter ride

Techymum said...

I officially declare this one a life lesson in what to believe.

More digging I found that the CEO and his wife of the organizing company also had exact matching times, and won their divisions.

It is my conclusion that Kate was paid to be in this race. And honestly - it did in fact draw my attention to the marathon itself. I had not heard of it except through her. Mission accomplished.

It seems it isn't sanctioned, so there are no "rules" that can be enforced.

Buyer beware - if you enter something you truly want to be competitive in, be sure that it is legit. Which I believe this sham of a marathon isn't.

LOOK WHO IS TALKING


Okay so I had to run to the mall today for some quick holiday stuff. I happen to despise malls – even on non-holiday days. Yes, little known fact about me. The traffic, congestion, people, noise, distractions (ohhhh the shoes!) all overstimulate me and so when I must enter the retail scene, I do it with great haste….to get outta there fast!

So as you can imagine, my great haste was much slowed down today by unusually insane drivers in the overcrowded parking lot, jolly list bearers with urgency behind their smiles and never enough sales personnel to help direct or answer everyone’s inquiries… This led to a frustrated me as I really just wanted to grab a quick thing and get out (darn those odd children’s Christmas list requests!:)!
Of all of the aforementioned observations, though, it was the parking lot that honestly scared me the most!

I noticed a woman on her cell phone as she backed out of her spot with a car filled to the brim with packages. Had she NOT been talking on the phone, I doubt she could have seen what was behind her! Ohhh dangerous!

I also noticed a woman who was carrying some very large bags with a small child walking next to her, crossing the street…

Oh my…people, be careful and don’t lose your heads with the holiday madness! Be safe!
That’s my advice to you… Shop safely this holiday season and may your packages elicit huge smiles from the ones you love!

she must be a S L O W wrapper if it is such a job when each kid is supposedly getting one (count 'em, 1) gift.

Not wishing illness on the kids but wish she'd get it bad enough for all of them. My Bad! she sure must have a fetish about vomit and poop for all the X's she posts or has posted about it. We are supposed to be fascinated with the topic?

I guess if it is vomit she has to clean up, I guess the boys will be back on the laundry room floor, with a bucket.

Shoka's Understudy said...

kate tweeted that she was give out at nursing the kids during their sickness. She is also obsessed with vomit and other bodily fluids of the kids.

She missed her calling. Instead of becoming a RN, she should of just studied and passed her test of being a CNA, a certified Nursing Assistant.

That way she could clean up, bag, bleach, store all the vomit and bodily fluids of her patients she wanted.

It makes me ill her saying that she can't work as a nurse to support her kids. She has tried to convince everyone that she cannot work 12 hour shifts EVERYDAY and support her kids and spend time with them.

Nurses have the most flexible working schedules out there. 12 hr. shifts, 3 days on, 3 days off. or 7 on, 7 off. There are also nurses that work from 7 to 3. She could go back to nursing and with Jon's child support and her not spending money like a drunken sailor on herself, she would make it.

Leigh Ann said...

She's just full of excuses. She could work 7 p.m.-7 a.m. three nights a week and Jon could come stay with the kids at the house. She'd make money, have benefits, no cost for childcare and be caught up on her sleep by the time the kids got home from school. For someone who says she'd do anything for her kids, that sure doesn't seem to extend to working a job that might be beneath her (in her opinion) or not be an ideal schedule (overnight work is hard on the body). Gosh, that would even leave her time to do stuff for herself. She could still write her blog and everything.

Pony said...

I think it's highly likely that Kate has burned so many bridges that she couldn't find a job as a nurse anymore. It's pretty well-documented that she has no empathy or willingness to put someone else's needs before her wishes.

heavennoseven said...

After, she made it public she made her sick kids sit in a cold house. I don`t think think she will ever be a real nurse. Maybe, act one for tv.
